I've been riding a Hyperlite Motive 134cm for four years now and i 'm looking to upgrade to a newer board. I'm 5'5 147 pounds and I'm wondering if i should go up to a 136-138cm board? What can i expect out of the board if i go up a few cm (softer landings, more pop?.?.) I would also consider myself in the beginner stages. Here are the boards I'm thinking about getting, any recommendations is appreciated! The Motive was a good ride so I'm thinking maybe a Murray board would be smart since he designed the motive, maybe his newer boards ride similar?
The Ronix Manna, i thought about getting The One but that's probably way out of my league. And last but not least the Liquid Force Witness.
I would love to demo boards but our Scheels doesn't carry much of a stock and i don't have any board shop within two hours to go a demo stuff. I'm open to any recommendations!
